Classroom ratios

The Ministry of Education regulates the adult:child ratios we provide (1 Teacher to 5 under 2-year-old children, and 1 Teacher to 10 over-2-year-old children).  Here at Real Kids however we offer a significantly higher ratio of adults to children than that prescribed by the Ministry.
